Code: PCC/21/322 Mental Capacity Act Refresher: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection Cases (Virtual Online)

Delegates must attend both sessions to complete the course - please add both dates into your calendar.

 

Course Outline: Mental Capacity Act Refresher: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection Cases delivered by ST Thomas Training

Annual refresher to update your knowledge on the Mental Capacity Act

The training is split into two sessions over consecutive days. The training will look at a range of cases which have been considered by the Court of Protection, to see what lessons can be learnt for our everyday practice.

Mental Capacity Act cases go to the Court of Protection either where there is conflict amongst the people involved, and/or where the issue is so serious or complicated that it cannot be resolved through meetings and negotiation. The rulings of the Court, and the reasons for those rulings, can be invaluable in helping health & social care practitioners deal with similar issues in their own practice. 

 

 

Participants should already be familiar with the Mental Capacity Act and the Code of Practice, because this is not an awareness session.

Code: PCC/20/1293 Conflict Management

In some areas of your work you may have to deal with really difficult people, perhaps other members of staff or members of the public and you are not sure how to handle the situation you find yourself in, or lack the confidence to try and resolve a situation before it escalates.
Conflict management training will help you to feel more confident when placed in such a situation. Although not every conflict has an easy-to-achieve resolution, most do, it's just that people are more adept at avoiding conflict than seeing what needs to be done to resolve it.

Code: PCC/21/358 Lite Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Conversation Skills for Social Workers & ISA's (Virtual Online)

Lite Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Conversation Skills

 

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is a Royal Society of Public Health accredited course and is about supporting you to make the most of every opportunity you have with the people you come into contact with every day to make a change.

The Making Every Contact Counts approach helps to ensure you are able to make a difference to the clients you work with by encouraging and supporting them to change behaviours that may be damaging to their health and wellbeing.

Who is the training suitable for?

Social Workers and ISA's that have completed their Strength Based Training are encouraged to attend MECC. In 'usual times' MECC would consist of two sessions delivered face to face, however, due to the pandemic this can't take place. In response to this MECC Lite is being delivered in one session and has been adapted to be delivered virtually. The session is three hours long and is very interactive.

This course is a virtual course run via Zoom or Teams - please add the date into your calendar, joining instructions will be sent to you a week before the course date.

Code: PCC/21/586 Resilience & Wellbeing Awareness Seminar

This is a 2 hour facilitated session on Microsoft Teams, open to any member of staff.

The facilitator will send you the event link shortly before the session.

Work can be rich with opportunity. Through work we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting; never more so than in having to adapt recently to the profound changes brought about by Covid-19.


Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life, you will have developed coping mechanisms that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can sometimes make situations worse. What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:


• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life
